Air ducts are the delivery mechanism for a home or businesses heating and cooling system. Many times air ducts are referred to as the "lungs" of the home, meaning they breathe air in and exhale air out. They connect to the furnace or air conditioning system and transport the conditioned air to the living or office space.
A heating and cooling system is designed to pull air from the occupied
space and condition it to the desired temperature chosen by the thermostat. The way these system do this
is by using air ducts. Air ducts will remove air from a space by using a "return" duct and
deliver the conditioned air through a "supply" duct. Air ducts can be made up of several hundred feet of ducting
snaking through a home or business.
As dust and debris accumulates in a duct system, the air that travels through can pick up those particulates and spread them throughout your home or business. As humans we are constantly producing dust. Add pets, cooking odors, renovation projects and smoking into the mix and your duct system could dirty much quicker than most. This is why the National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends an air duct cleaning every 3-5 years.
Indoor air quality is always important for any home or business. But maintaining safe and clean indoor air can span even beyond a
professional air duct cleaning. Eliminate the unseen contaminants such as bacteria, mold and viruses for your indoor air by disinfecting
your ductwork with Amistee.

Air ducts are the delivering system for a home or businesses hot and cold air. They're designed to pull air from one space
and condition it to the desired temperature chosen by the thermostat. Because air ducts are pulling air, they're also sucking in
any particulate and debris along with it, including the things we can't see such as bacteria, germs and other microorganisms.
Air duct disinfecting is removing these hidden contaminants from your ductwork and your indoor air. Having the air ducts in your home or business disinfected, deodorizes and keeps your indoor air quality safe and clean.
According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), a proper air duct cleaning should accomplish a "total source removal"
of solid matter from your ductwork, meaning the built up dust, dirt, pet hair, pet dander, pollen and any other particulates should be
Disinfecting ductwork takes air duct cleaning one step further and kills the bacteria, viruses, and germs that could be recirculating through your system.

Because air ducts are pulling air from spaces and delivering the conditioned air back to those spaces, they are also sucking up any particulate or debris and pumping it back into the same space. It is not uncommon for an air duct to accumulate several pounds of dirt and debris. When these particulates enter the air ducts they may fully cycle through the system or stay lodged in the air ducts, only to come lose months or years down the roads. Debris can be made up of different types of things such as ...
Air duct cleaning is the service of cleaning the inside surfaces of the ductwork and restoring
them back to their original state. Air ducts designed to be free and clear of dirt and debris, allowing air to pass
through safely and easily.
A proper air duct cleaning as stated by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) is to accomplish "total source removal," meaning the debris should be completely removed and every piece of ducting should be cleaned.
Amistee uses the most common and the most powerful piece of equipment for air duct cleaning, a vacuum truck.
This piece of highly specialized equipment is a self-contained truck that is fully equipped with all the proper
tools to clean air duct systems.
The vacuum trucks that Amistee uses ranges between 16,000-17,000 cubic feet per minute (CFM) in suction power. That's equivalent to the suction power of 425 upright Hoover vacuums! The trucks pull all of the dirt and debris in ductwork to a collection bin inside the truck.
Amistee also uses a portable piece of equipment to clean the air duct of a home, business or large commercial building. The average CFM ranges from 2,000-5,000 for a well maintained piece of equipment.
Keep in mind, there is a range in quality and suction power of portable air duct cleaning equipment. If you choose to have your air ducts cleaned by a company that you feel while provide the best value for your money, make sure that their portable equipment is high-efficiency particulate arresting (HEPA). HEPA filters can capture 99.97% of all debris greater than .3 microns, which is the size of most bacteria.
It's important to remember that all pieces of the air duct delivery system (air ducts) must be cleaned to provide you with results.

at their history with past clients and recent jobs that they've done. If they do good work and are proud of the work they do they should be happy to connect you with
one of their recent customers.
Do they have any complaints on the Better Business Bureau (BBB)? Ask if they have referrals from past customers in your area or from customers who have similar duct configurations? Check to see how long they have been in business. Ask to see if the company is licensed and insured. Do other companies refer the particular air duct cleaner? Make sure the price they are quoting you will not change and if so, why.
